LAS VEGAS (AP) — School police say a Las Vegas woman was arrested on child endangerment charges after her son found her gun in his backpack in class and immediately turned it over to his third-grade teacher.

Clark County School District police Sgt. Bryan Zink told the Las Vegas Review-Journal the gun wasn’t loaded, there was no ammunition in the backpack and the boy said he had no idea the weapon was there.

His mother, 36-year-old Iris Guerrero, was arrested at the school where she acknowledged the gun was hers and said she put it in the backpack but forgot to take it out.

Zink says 30-year-old Sebastian Nav-Guerra was also arrested on drug and weapon charges after officers found methamphetamine in his pocket and a gun in an SUV in which he waited for Guerrero at the school.
